Hastings Museum’s digital projector, 65-foot wide screen and six channel surround sound will put you (and your students!) in the middle of the action – especially if you choose to view a 3D film!
Our Theatre is a great venue for school groups, and Hastings Museum films in 2D or 3D are an exciting way to discover new ideas and worlds, especially when paired with other Museum programs to offer a complete educational package.

The installation of our new digital projector meant that many of films in our library can no longer be screened. However, we are working to rebuild our library, so check back or contact Visitor Services for details.
Note that the new projector system can play DVDs, including Blu-ray discs, which may be one way to screen a film for your class.

Lewis and Clark: Great Journey West – Showing in digital brilliance, this film is a fascinating re-enactment of Lewis and Clark’s original journey. The story is told with Jeff Bridges doing the voice-over but with real actors set in original locations. It is authentic down to the last detail, including such remarkable scenes as the expedition shooting rapids in canoes made from burn-out trees and pulling their boats by rope over the mountains of Montana.
